LEGO Elves sets - Review!!

My girls were so lucky to be sent a couple of the new LEGO Elves Sets to try out....Up until I got the email about these sets I didn't even know they existed!


Aira’s Pegasus Sleigh

RRP £34.99

Build a flying sleigh with Aira Windwhistler, the Wind Elf. Fly up to the clouds pulled by Starshine and Rufus, the 2 winged horses, and help the LEGO Elves find the magic wind key they need to send their lost friend Emily Jones back to the human world.

Load up the chest with biscuits for the journey and then follow the magic map with Aira and Azari Firedancer, the Fire Elf, to an ancient windmill in the sky. Miku the baby dragon has the last key, but how will the elf friends get it from her? Help Aira muster her magic wind powers to blow biscuits towards Miku and distract her long enough to grab the key.


Includes Aira Windwhistler and Azari Firedancer mini-doll figures, plus Miku the baby dragon and 2 pegasi: Starshine and Rufus.

Windmill measures over 5” (13cm) high, 3” (10cm) wide and 2” (7cm) deep & Pegasus sleigh (with wings extended and 2 pegasi) measures over 1” (5cm) high, 10” (26cm) long and 4” (12cm) wide



This was a lovely set to put together with just over 300 pieces....Stu took charge of this one but the girls did most of it themselves...

Ellie was rather taken with the horses and the extending wings on the sligh...It is such a cute set and has already had a lot of use...Ellie has named the horses herself....They are now called Linda & Bertie....I have no idea where those names have come from....Linda came on the school run with us yesterday morning and flew all the way.....


RRP £74.99

The LEGO Elves have completed their quest to find all 4 magic keys needed to open the portal and send Emily Jones back to the human world. Now Emily and Naida Riverheart, the Water Elf, must make their way through the obstacles in the amazing Sky Castle to reach the portal while Skyra, the guardian of the portal, watches on from above with her owl, Nascha.

Help the elves make their way through the overgrown entrance and use Naida's magic water powers to find the secret door in the spa behind the waterfall. Then reveal the enchanted staircase to get past the lava kitchen and overcome Skyra's protective Pegasus, to place all 4 keys into the portal. When you finally face Skyra, convince her to open the portal using her staff. Who knows when Emily will visit the incredible universe of the LEGO Elves again?

 Includes 3 mini-doll figures: Emily Jones, Naida Riverheart and Skyra, plus Golden Glow the Pegasus and Nascha the owl.  

Skyra’s Mysterious Sky Castle measures over 9” (24cm) high, 11” (28cm) wide and 3” (8cm) deep...


Wow! What a set! It has over 800 pieces and this is the biggest set which we have ever completed....It took a couple of hours at least....It was well worth it when we saw the finished castle....Ellie got a bit bored towards the end but we had a great time....There was a few fiddly bits....I don't think the portal is on correctly but it looks good enough.....The girls needed my help more than with other sets but it was a great activity to do together....

This set is obviously aimed at older children as there is so much to put together but it is a fantastic challenge.

There is so much detail...All the flowers, the oven which opened, the cookies, the staircase, the secret door and the little fruit bowl with fruit....So cute!

Ellie wanted to make a video to show off the LEGO Elves sets and here it is.....She thought of what to say herself and needed no prompting from me.....(She does have her posh voice on....hehehe)



We loved both of these sets....They took a good few hours to put together but it kept the girls amused and they love the end result....We made them on Sunday afternoon and Ellie has played with them everyday since....So far she hasn't taken the castle to bits! (Phew! I may cry if she did, after all the work we did....lol) This is great for imaginative play....

Ellie has already been online to look at the other sets in the LEGO Elves range and has decided she wants them all....lol
